 Our Description

Henri de Lubac

This is a masterpiece written by one of the 20th century's greatest theologians.  The book's influence has been vast and profound.  In many ways it laid the foundation for the Second Vatican Council and the book remains a powerful corrective to misunderstandings of Catholicism that have been erroneously presented as flowing from the council.  Drawing on the Bible, the Fathers of the Church, the Church's ancient liturgues, Catholicism explains how the individual Catholic's faith should include a personal commitment that avoids a narrow individualism cut off from the life of communion with the whole Church, including the Church throughout the ages.

  It addresses:

  • Dogma
  • The Church
  • The Sacraments
  • Eternal Life
  • Christianity and History
  • The Interpretation of Scripture
  • Salvation through the Church
  • Catholicism
  • The Present Situation
  • Person and Society
  • Trancendence
  • Mysteruim Crucis

..."What is most engaging, however is that de Lubac is not expressing his own private opinions, which would fade as they had blossomed, but lets the Fathers of our Faith speak so that we hear the voice of the origin in all its freshness and astonishing relevence."
                                    from the forward by Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger
